Study of Environmental Arctic Change: Plans for Implementation During the International Polar Year and Beyond.
Report of the SEARCH Implementation Workshop, May 23 - 25, 2005.
This report is a synthesis of community-wide planning discussions before, during and after the SEARCH Implementation Workshop, which was convened to establish priorities for the next steps of the implementation of SEARCH. The report is meant to serve as a point of reference for immediate planning in preparation for the International Polar Year and for an Arctic Observing Network, and also to provide a perspective on SEARCH beyond the immediate needs and priorities.
Proceedings of the SEARCH Open Science Meeting
27-30 October 2003, Seattle, Washington.
These proceedings present the evidence of rapid environmental change in the Arctic discussed during the 2003 SEARCH Open Science Meeting.
SEARCH: The Study of Environmental Arctic Change: A four page brochure.
SEARCH: The Study of Environmental Arctic Change, a brochure published by the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. for the SEARCH Interagency Working Group and the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee, is now available.
At the request of John Calder, head of the Arctic Research Office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and through the Cooperative Institute for Arctic Research (CIFAR) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, ARCUS developed this short informational brochure to introduce the SEARCH program, a major new interagency arctic research effort, to a general audience.
Nine federal agencies with research interests and responsibilities in the Arctic will cooperate to carry out the SEARCH program. The SEARCH brochure is designed for use by agency representatives to present their research activities and the collaborative activities supported by SEARCH and to inform the public of the impact of SEARCH activities in assessing and understanding the scope of global climate change.
The brochure consists of four pages, featuring each agency's SEARCH activities and an overall description of the purpose, activities and plans for SEARCH. The brochure is available as a downloadable PDF from the ARCUS web site.
